Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy will supply 25 SG 4.5-145 for one of the largest wind farms in Vietnam.
The Hoa Thang 1.2 wind farm, with a total capacity of 113 MW, will generate enough electricity to meet the demands of over 240,000 Vietnamese following its commissioning in 2021.
The deal also marks the largest order in the country for Siemens Gamesa. Additionally, the company has secured a long-term 10-year service contract.
The project, located in the Bac Binh district, Binh Thuan province, on the South-Central coast of Vietnam, is developed by Hoa Thang Energy Joint Stock Company, a special-purpose vehicle of Vietnam’s construction group Trading Construction Works Organization (WTO) which has close to 60 years construction experience.
The Vietnamese government estimates that total power generating capacity will reach 125-130 GW by 2030, up from 46 GW in 2018. The government also aims for renewable energy to account for 15-20 percent of its total energy output by 2030 and has established a target of developing 6 GW of wind power capacity by 2030.
“With an accumulated installation of 101 GW, Siemens Gamesa can leverage its global expertise and footprint to partner with Hoa Thang Energy to develop one of the largest wind farms in Vietnam,” said Richard Paul Luijendijk, CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s Onshore business unit in APAC.
“We selected Siemens Gamesa as the most appropriate supplier for our first wind farm project,” said Nguyen Thanh Oai, CEO of Trading Construction Works Organization.
Siemens Gamesa has installed more than 8.4 GW of onshore turbines in China, Pakistan, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. In the offshore segment, the company completed the installation of Taiwan’s first offshore wind power project in 2019 (128 MW) and in addition reached close to 2 GW of firm orders.
The company also signed preferred supplier agreements for an additional 755 MW combined volume in Japan and Taiwan.
